Students at the St Lukes Campus

Your online academic induction course will help you learn more about the university and what to expect during your time as a student at Exeter. We recommend you take some time to access the online induction in the weeks leading up to your arrival at Exeter. Find out more

During Welcome Week you will have many opportunities to meet your fellow students and some of the teaching staff on your programmes too. As well as the fun stuff offered by the Students' Guild (such as taster sessions for various societies and sports clubs for example) you will also be attending timetabled welcome/induction sessions for your programme, which will inform you about what to expect as a student here at Exeter. 

Information about academic induction events for Welcome Week will be available on the Exeter Learning Environment (ELE) pages. We will be updating this page regularly as new details of induction and welcome activities are released. Please ensure you check back here frequently for updates. 


Please purchase a pair of flat black shoes with non-slip soft soles. These MUST cover your total foot (heel, toes and the top surface of your foot). These shoes must be very comfortable and made of a waterproof material, such as leather. You will be spending a lot of time on your feet and you should look after them, invest in a good pair of shoes. If you buy cheap shoes, you will end up with sore feet and have to replace them frequently. Nurse shoes are not fashionable and are designed to reduce risk of injury, including spills, dropped objects or contamination. Soft soles are required to reduce noise in patient and surrounding areas. 

Fob watch

Please purchase a fob watch - these can be purchased very cheaply from online suppliers. The silicon ones, come in a range of colours and are ideal as they can be removed and cleaned to reduce risk of infection. 


Please purchase a stethoscope - these can be purchased very cheaply from online suppliers. Please purchase a basic dual head model. 

The Freshers’ Fair is your chance to speak to a range of societies and sports clubs, find out about some of the amazing opportunities available to you, and soak up the atmosphere on campus! Coming to the fair is a brilliant way to get involved with everything on offer.

If you’ve received an offer to start one of our programmes in January, we’ll be in touch with you later in the year with details of your induction activities and what you need to do to register with us at the University of Exeter.
